Cover

Maybe you go along knowing that the White Album/ Let it Be period may have provided us with the coolest era of Beatles haircuts. You know that. But sometimes you think secretly that the White Album is too long, and you know you don't know these records as well as you should. But then one day you hear St. Vincent cover "Dig a Pony" in the back of a London taxi, and it finally dawns on you just how negligent you have been. It makes you think that you could cover that song, or should, as soon as you can teach yourself how to play more than G C and D--oh, and Bm.

I don't know what it is about this version. Just really dig it. Sounds kind of like the old PJ Harvey 4 Track Demos record.

I've heard that somewhere out there is a Bill Cosby cover of Sgt. Peppers. Track that down and you win a prize.

Thanks for visiting Against Oblivion.

Who are you? Where are you?

I think the White Album encapsulates all the best and worst things about The Beatles.

But Annie Clark is just so friggin' crush-worthy.

"Your Lips Are Red" is on all of my mixes right now.
